Band Announces SXSW Showcase

March 18th at The Ghost Room

“There’s a lot of hope in this music, and we’ve got a lot of hope for this band’s upcoming full-length, Sympathy, this spring.”

“…the band’s intimacy with love and loss infuses a certain poignancy into their sweeping melodies.”
– SoundSpike

“Scattered Trees music is the perfect accompaniment to spring. Even the crew’s more introspective tracks sound as if they were recorded in the warming heat of the late-afternoon sun, frontman Nate Eiesland casually delivering his words between sips of lemonade from a porch swing.”
– The Chicago Tribune

Today, Chicago’s Scattered Trees premiered their live video for “A Conversation About Death on New Years Eve” on My Old Kentucky Blog. The video for “A Conversation” is a glimpse of Scattered Trees’ live performances that the band honed playing around Chicago. The group has also announced a series of new dates, including a new SXSW showcase on March 18th at The Ghost Room as a part of The NAIL/The MuseBox SXSW Day Party.

The band’s upcoming performances lead up to the release of Scattered Trees’ latest record Sympathy, which will be released on April 5th via Roll Call Records/EMI. The album is a focused, deeply personal collection of songs that finds Scattered Trees experimenting with lush multi-part harmonies, constructing dynamic builds, and exploring the intricacies of love and loss. Opening with “Bury the Floors,” lead singer Nate Eiesland sings “It’s the house that I built you to fall / We started to walk then we stood up to crawl / So bury the floors and burn down the walls / to find ourselves by morning.” Driving rock epics like “Four Days Straight” rub shoulders with melancholic elegies like “Where You Came From.” The album’s title track starts with a stripped-down plaintive mandolin, ultimately fading into a slow-burning orchestral groove. Melting into “Five Minutes,” Scattered Trees continues the build until the track bursts forth. The band rounds out the record with the mournful acoustic closer “On Your Side,” a fitting tribute for a deeply heartfelt and therapeutic album.
